Coleman 54-Quart Steel-Belted Cooler - Red
My husband and I had one of these coolers years ago. We were very glad to see that they finally brought it back. We purchased one and just used it over the Labor Day weekend. Had it sitting outside on our back porch, the temperature outside in the shade was 106, drinks stayed ice cold. In fact, it has been out there for 4 days with drinks in it and they are still ice cold, and there is still ice in it. The only bad thing is the latch is not as good as the original one. It does not lock as tight. But still a great cooler, we are going to buy a second one.

The latch broke after 3 uses, Drain plug strap broke. Coleman discontinued replacement parts and doesn't even recognize this cooler on their website. Lousy choice!!!

I purchased my Steel-Belted cooler about 3 years ago, when it was reintroduced. I thought the price was to much-BUT it is well worth every cent. The cooler is used for every season, indoor and out. The durable steel and simple lines really make a great cooler. Keeps ice for days, longer if you limit the amount you open it. All my friends want one!
